A tourist’s umbrella in front of the #Hiroshima nuclear bomb memorial in #Japan. Just over 69 years ago we entered the nuclear age, and over 166,000 people were killed in this first nuclear strike.
A dead cow in an abandoned farm in the #Fukushima nuclear Exclusion Zone. After cutting our way through the dense vegetation we came to large barns, half collapsed and overgrown. In each barn were row after row of dead cows - skeletal and still tethered. Tgey starved to death after their owners fled in fear of nuclear #radiation. “The flies were everywhere that summer” says a neighbouring farmer who decided to stay.

"Dear Workers of the Nuclear Plant, thank you for saving us. I think you are brave. I hope you stay healthy. You are awesome. Sincerely, Mikey (Age 8)" letters from American school children displayed in the TEPCO clean-up worker’s headquarters, South of the #Fukushima exclusion zone, #Japan
Wandering through the overgrown depths of the #Fukushima Exclusion Zone: HazMat suits to protect us from unseen nuclear dangers, and the familiar ‘click’ of the Geiger counter. I visit the abandoned house of an evacuated couple, displaced from their land by an invisible risk. I feel I have seen this somewhere before, met people with the same fears. ‘The Chernobyl of the East’ I keep thinking: ‘The Chernobyl of the East’ 😷
Walking along an abandoned and overgrown road through the #nuclear exclusion zone near the destroyed #Fukushima power plant, #Japan. The forest is taking over 🌿🌳🍂🍃🌲🌱

Fukushima ostrich: rescued from the streets of Namie town where it was wondering after the 2011 ‘Triple Disaster’ in #Japan. Mr Matsumura, a farmer-activist who insisted on staying in the Exclusion Zone now looks after this animal and many other abandoned cows, cats and horses. 🐱🐮🐴
